ABSTRACT

Traffic congestion is taxing Dhaka City, Bangladesh, and other large metropolitan cities worldwide through travel time, vehicle operation, additional maintenance, excess fuel consumption, and environmental pollution. To minimize traffic congestion, taking care of micro-level causes, and the macro-level causes are usually suggested. However, to address traffic congestion, understanding traffic psychology can likewise assume a pivotal function as it is an order that reviews driver or other road user's behavior logically. This paper aims to examine car drivers' intention to aberrant driving behaviors on roads in Dhaka City, Bangladesh. Hence, this conduct has become more liable for traffic congestion on roads in Dhaka by generating frequent near collision situations with other vehicles by lessening the velocity than assisting to be free from the congestion.A total of 384 car drivers' in Dhaka, Bangladesh has participated in a roadside survey, and 55 factors under six latent constructs, which are attitude, subjective norm, perceived behavioral control, socio demographic factors, intention, and behavior were analyzed by performing structural equation modeling (SEM), and 39 factors were found significant. From the research findings, suggestions ranging frominstituting education and training programs for car driversto amendments of law have been provided to control car drivers' intention to aberrant driving behaviors and its anguish in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
